Love this recipe, but replying to an old question, I used redbush / roobious tea for this. The first few times I used Yorkshire / tetley and the tea flavour is too strong. Also, I use Aldi Austins not Pimms. Great drink for gathering where some people are and aren't drinking, I make it without the Pimms and top up depending on guest. I also add a bit of lemonade.

I used green tea and it made a light and refreshing drink. Seems quite a lot of sugar so will try with less next time.

Such a good idea - I love iced tea and can't stand fizzy drinks so it's perfect

Great recipe, good balance of flavours. Can you update the timing though because it says "Ready in 10 minutes," which is certainly not true!

absolutely delicious. I like Pimms but find mix with Lemonade sometimes too sweet, this is not too sweet and very refreshing.

Pimm’s No 1 is an alcoholic drink, the traditional drink of Wimbledon, and summer garden parties created in the 1800s by James Pimm. It is a blend of dry gin, liqueur, fruit juices and spice and is usually served over ice with lemonade or ginger ale. If you are not looking for an alcoholic drink you could add the juice of an extra orange and lemon then top up with soda water or lemonade.
